dad’s_role

Dads today
The role of a father is constantly evolving, even more than that of the mother. Here are some things you may share with your child’s dad?

Anyone who has read Abraham Lincoln’s letter to his son’s teacher to mould him into a sensitive, responsible, upright and independent person would have got an idea of the caring, stoic, and perfect role model of a father he must have been. Yet, he also gives the impression of being distant and aloof. Today’s dads, at least many of them, strive to be different. It’s not been an easy transition from “father” to “papa”. 

Changes triggered by a combination of factors: urbanisation, nuclear families with diffuse gender roles and the emergence of the “sensitive and caring” new-age man, can make today’s dads feel utterly confused by the conflicting demands of their family, job and responsibilities.

A recent study (A C Neilson) in the six metropolises of our country highlights the guilt felt by fathers and that only 12 percent (in Delhi) manage to spend adequate time with their children. Many still take the easy way out by sticking to the traditional role of the father being the provider and disciplinarian. Others become the fun and playful dad without any sense of boundaries and commitments. Still others attempt to usurp the role of the mother by being over-involved and intrusive, often causing confusion and/or conflict in family relationships.

Needless to say
It is best to strike a balance and find one’s own position which is at once dynamic – depending on the needs of your children and the family – and caring. There is no other job that is more rewarding than being able to straddle the competing demands of today’s lifestyle and still remaining involved to see your children grow from close quarters. As a bonus, your children will stand a higher chance of having increased empathy – fewer sex-stereotyped beliefs and more self control, throughout their lives.

For your spouse
1. Research shows that dads who are closely involved with pregnancy, childbirth, and hands-on care in the initial years have more of the caring hormone, “Oxytocin”, in their system. This, no doubt contributes to a deeper sense of attachment and bonding which can last a lifetime. Cuddling, cooing, feeding and changing are all fulfilling if you can overcome the initial resistance.

2. The only way of finding time for your children is to allot +and fix time-out with them. And you must indulge with each child independent of family time. Switch off your mobile phone, get away from colleagues and find a consistent space which is unique between you and him.

3. To overcome the inherent  confusion of gender roles in today’s metrosexual world,

it is vital to periodically discuss your responsibilities with your wife. Given the dynamic nature of your family and the constantly changing needs of your children, it becomes important to respond to the changes.

4. However, you must also know where the parental boundaries lie. Be friendly but don’t try to be a friend to your child. Dads who can’t wait for their sons to grow up so that they can share their own adolescent escapades may be heading for trouble. Sharing your childhood stories is important, but you should be able to sense where to draw the line and stop.

    I have learned result-oriented things by means of your site. One other thing I’d really like to say is that often newer pc os’s are inclined to allow extra memory to be utilized, but they also demand more memory space simply to perform. If an individual’s computer is not able to handle a lot more memory and also the newest program requires that storage increase, it might be the time to buy a new Laptop or computer. Thanks

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    I have observed that online degree is getting common because attaining your degree online has changed into a popular option for many people. A huge number of people have definitely not had a possibility to attend a regular college or university nonetheless seek the raised earning possibilities and career advancement that a Bachelor Degree provides. Still other individuals might have a degree in one course but would wish to pursue one thing they already have an interest in.

    One thing I’d really like to discuss is that weightloss program fast may be possible by the proper diet and exercise. People’s size not only affects the look, but also the general quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, plus physical skills are affected in putting on weight. It is possible to do everything right and still gain. If this happens, a medical problem may be the primary cause. While excessive food instead of enough exercising are usually at fault, common health conditions and traditionally used prescriptions can greatly add to size. Thanks alot : ) for your post in this article.
